Homosexuality and the Manifesto of John Shelby Spong

Retired Episcopal bishop John Shelby Spong has released a new Manifesto on homosexual marriage: it’s simply true and he’s not going to argue with people who disagree with him any longer.  There is no surprise surrounding bishop Spong’s opinions on homosexuality; the former bishop is a self-professed liberal who doesn’t believe in the authority of scripture.  As Dr. Mohler notes on today’s program, the problem with this manifesto is that it says Christians should simply be quiet and accept the tide of homosexuality that is sweeping society.  The gospel alone provides the answer people need to the homosexual question: Jesus came to save sinners.  The Church cannot be silent about a matter as important as this.
